Now.... Please dont' think of this thread as another one of those many where fans of each MD / singer starts fighting with each other posting some baseless information with negative feeback about them.
Coming to the thread... HR and Karthik (whats his initials ???) are two of the hot properties of TFM in playback singing. The most wanted among the current crop. In a short span of time, they have come up with so many number of hits with almost all the MDs in the industry. I dont remember when was the last time that TFM has seen 2 singers coming as hot like these 2 at the same time.
These guys should have a really high hit-ratio compared to the others and they should have sung for almost all the heroes in the industry. And the good thing is there voices are not branded with any particular hero. They sing everything from folk to western pop, fast numbers to slow melodies, jolly good numbers to sad themes.. Versatile !!!
The best thing about them is they have their unique way of singing and they haven't moulded themselves on any of the old successful veterans which should be highly appreciated.
Contrasting them, each of them are different in their own way.. with Karthik having a husky voice that suits both slow melodies and fast paced numbers and HR with a soft meldoious voice that shies more in romantic songs.
It would be great if you guys , fans of both of them could post your comments, opinions, criticism (genuine) , some interesting facts about them and their songs (recent releases) in this thread.

With the songs they have sung till now, Karthik seems to have covered more than HR. Karthik has got his share of philosophical "karuthu" songs, romantic solos & duets, sad numbers, fast western numbers, folk, jolly group songs.
HR's lion's share would be from romantic numbers (solos & duets) and slow melodies. I wonder if he has been tried in some folk, western, fast numbers as much as Karthik ???? Maybe, I am wrong !!! What do you guys say ???

"I dont remember when was the last time that TFM has seen 2 singers coming as hot like these 2 at the same time."
In this context, i can think of two sets, SPB-Yesudass and Hariharan-Unnikrishnan. While the former did prove their worth under any MD, the latter depended on the MDs to prop them. The reality is that singers matter very little nowadays. So the singers don't or won't last too long if the MDs don't.
My humble opinion. This thread has very little scope!!
